The Love Dare

Alex Kendrick, Stephen Kendrick

Price: FREE

After 15 years of marriage and three children, this simple little book helped me to remember that marriage is not just about meeting the right person, it’s also about being the right person. A small time commitment over 40 days breathed now life back into our marriage. I highly recommend it to all married couples.

R. Lesniak

Unconditional love is eagerly promised at weddings, but rarely practiced in real life. As a result, romantic hopes are often replaced with disappointment in the home. But it doesn’t have to stay that way.

The Love Dare, the New York Times No. 1 best seller that has sold five million copies and was major plot device in the popular movie Fireproof, is a 40-day challenge for husbands and wives to understand and practice unconditional love. Whether your marriage is hanging by a thread or healthy and strong, The Love Dare is a journey you need to take. It’s time to learn the keys to finding true intimacy and developing a dynamic marriage.

This second edition also features a special link to a free online marriage evaluation, a new preface by Stephen and Alex Kendrick, minor text updates, and select testimonials from The Love Dare readers. Take the dare!

granola

Easy Granola Bar Recipe

Cheryl Hines

Price: FREE

This is great book. It’s well written and well laid-out.
There are a number of very yummy looking recipes included (I’ve only made one so far), but the thing that I really love about this book is that the author provides you with a ‘system’ for making your own granola bars and experimenting with your own ingredients and flavors. She gives you a template – how to adjust this and that to compensate for this and that depending on what ingredients you wish to add. This is a goldmine! It’s a recipe you can completely stylize to suit yourself. And that’s on top of a book full of utterly delicious recipes that need no alteration at all.
I immediately moved from my first recipe in the book to a concoction of my own devising and I was very pleased with the results (lets just say there was lots of dark chocolate and almonds involved.)

JoannaGoanna

You want a granola bar with just the right crunch and just the right chewiness. Check.

You want one that doesn’t have a lot oats, plenty of fruit (or no fruit at all), milk chocolate instead of dark, and a lot more nuts (or not)! Check.

You want a bar that doesn’t go to pieces when it is hot out so you can stuff it in your purse, your kid’s lunchbox or take it backpacking. Check.

You can control ingredients for your food sensitivities (read: make it gluten-free). Check.

You don’t want to heat up the oven to do it! Check.

And you want to “know” what’s in the thing, too! Double check!

I wanted a bar like that too which is why I developed the Easy Granola Bar Recipe.

The recipe in reality is a template. You see, once you learn how to prepare the sticky binder, you can add any possible combination of dry ingredients. Make it plain; make it fancy – even make them gluten-free, if need be. Have it your way!

This isn’t your ordinary bland oat-filled bar… we are talking gourmet! Dare I say stellar?

The beauty of the recipe template is that it allows you to use just about any combination of sticky binder like honey, corn syrup, molasses or rice syrup – even jams and jellies.

Then add your favorite blend of dried and crunchy things like oats (or not), rice cereal, pretzels, nuts and seeds, even ready-made trail mix or granola. Also, add coconut and dried fruit like raisins, cranberries, blueberries – you choose.

To make them extra special, you can add yummy things like chocolate, coffee, spices and flavors.

Included are some of my family’s favorites:
Peanut Butter Crunch
Praline Crunch Bar
Mocha Almond Crunch
Triple Chocolate Bars
Just Nuts!
Trail Mix Bar
Cranberry White Chocolate Bars
Liberty Bars
Raw Power Bar
Almond Bliss Bars
Ginger Snap Bars
Marshmallow Dump Bars

This way you can make a traditional granola bar with oats, nuts and seeds. Or try Just Nuts, an all nut version. Do you like white chocolate and cranberries? Cranberry White Chocolate are the bomb! Or add in chocolate and coffee to make a “mocha” bar – see Mocha Almond Crunch or Triple Chocolate. Anyone love pralines? You have to try Praline Crunch bars. You are free to explore with this recipe.

I am excited to offer this “designer recipe” and hope you gain inspiration to make your own perfect granola bar.

Oh, and these are a no-bake bar, too. Thought you’d like that.

Confident Conversation: How to Communicate Successfully in Any Situation

Mike Bechtle

Price: FREE

Some people might look at the title of this book and think they don’t need this book. But, as the author states, communication skills are just like a house re-modeling–some people need a complete renovation, others just need a paint touch-up of their skills. The book is pretty inexpensive, but has given me some new ideas in how I conduct myself in social communication situations. Just think of how much money you spend on improving your golf score or your musical skills through lessons. How much do you spend on bettering your communication skills?

Craig Andrew Petinak

Communication is an art, and anyone–whether shy or outgoing–can improve his or her conversational skills. In Confident Conversation, Mike Bechtle offers a straightforward guide to making good conversation that works for any personality type.
He highlights the art of give and take, stresses the importance of listening, and gives confidence to those who hesitate to strike up a conversation. He shows readers that they don’t have to have a stockpile of great stories to tell in order to make good conversation. Instead, he encourages an “explorer” mind-set and gives readers the tools they need to talk to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food

Lysa TerKeurst

This book is such an excellent read! It’s like sitting down talking to a girlfriend. I just received the book 6 days ago and I only have 3 chapters left to read for my first run through. I am so excited about what is in the book that I can’t put it down and I can’t read it slowly yet. My husband is wishing that he got me a bedside table lamp for Christmas because I’m up late every night reading this book. I have discovered that the book not only helps women that are struggling with food, but struggling in other areas of life as well. I have used the scriptures that Lysa highlights to help me overcome other areas in my life that I was lacking in. I have also been using the practical advice and scriptures to help my brother that is having problems in his marriage. The focus of the book helps us to realize, no matter the issue we need to crave God! It’s amazing how I have seen this book help in 2 areas of my life already and in the life my brother (I didn’t tell him that I got the scriptures and advice from a girlie book). My doctors have been telling me that I am overweight for 3 years now and I knew that already, but I am making preparations to meet with a nutritionist soon, because I need hard core help. I look forward to my slowed down reread of this amazing book. I thank God that Lysa is open about what a lot of us girls go through. I think this would be amazing in a small group. We don’t need to do this alone and what better way then with the girls? After all, we used to go eat with the girls.

Missy T

According to bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst, craving isn’t a bad thing, but we must realize God created us to crave so we’d ultimately desire more of Him in our lives. Many of us have misplaced that craving, overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. For a woman struggling with unhealthy eating habits, Made to Crave will equip her to: * Break the ‘I’ll start again Monday cycle’ and start feeling good about herself today * Stop beating herself up over the numbers on the scale and make peace with the body you’ve been given * Discover how weight loss struggles aren’t a curse but, rather, a blessing in the making * Replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory * Eat healthy without feeling deprived * Reach a healthy weight goal while growing closer to God through the process Made to Crave session titles include: Session 1: From Deprivation to Empowerment Session 2: From Desperation to Determination Session 3: From Guilt to Peace Session 4: From Triggers to Truth Session 5: From Permissible to Beneficial Session 6: From Consumed to Courageous Bonus Session: Moving the Mountain The Made to Crave DVD is designed for use with the Made to Crave Participant’s Guide.

Once-A-Day Walk with Jesus Devotional: 365 Days in the New Testament

Zondervan

Price: 99 cents

This devotional is very well written. It’s about life with Jesus…how to better yourself through Jesus, thru praise and worship and the great commission. This devotional is more than just scripture and a blip about the scripture. It’s life changing; it’s life giving; it’s a connection to our creator as His creation. If my big toes were thumbs, I’d give this four thumbs up!

EW Puddle

The Once-A-Day Walk with Jesus Devotional introduces you to the New Testament of the Bible through 365 daily readings, allowing you to read through the New Testament in one year. Each devotion offers unique ways to center on God and strengthen your faith: by reading a Scripture portion, followed by an insight from a remarkable Christian writer of the past, and ending with a timely, personal application and worship portion to help focus your prayer and lead you into a time of reflection — all centered on that day’s particular focus. The quotes from past Christian writers include insights from such well-known authors as John Calvin, Dwight L. Moody, Hannah Whitall Smith, Martin Luther, Charles Spurgeon, and many others.

Top 50 Most Delicious Homemade Sorbet Recipes

Julie Hatfield

Price: 99 cents

Really gorgeous recipes is an understatement.
Wonderful variety and several for anyone no matter what age, dietary needs, and preferences.
The only drawback I can see is that most seem to require some churning in an ice-cream maker. Actually it would be worth buying one just for these sorbets they are so good!
A few are completed in a food processor and it might be worth trying to use that method to see how well it turned out for the others.
They would make a range of sophisticated puddings but also some lollies for the children, and, I love a choice of wonderful ice-cubes to cool a hot day or to finish a meal without guilt about over-eating.
This book is what I call part of the “essential” library and I am really impressed.

Irish Mist
